Ahipoki Bowl: Fast-Casual Hawaiian Poke Restaurant to Open in Scottsdale

Like poke? No, we're not talking about the creepy flirting tool Facebook created a few years ago. We're talking about poke, the Hawaiian raw fish salad. (And it's pronounced "pok-eh," in case you were wondering.)  

Well, if the answer is yes, then we've got some good news. California-based restaurant Ahipoki Bowl is coming to the Valley, specifically to 2805 North Scottsdale Road, near the intersection of Scottsdale and Thomas roads. 

The fast-casual restaurant lets diners customize their own poke bowl — think Chipotle, but instead of filling your tortilla with meat, beans, and salsa, you get to fill your bowl with rice, raw fish, sauce, and toppings. Fish options include tuna, spicy tuna, octopus, shrimp, and more, which can be dressed in a variety of sauces and then topped with anything from wasabi and daikon to seaweed and cucumber.
